Castro Street Project Coming in for a Check-Up



Quote:
Back in August, the project at 376 Castro Street was approved to demo a gas station and build a 65' six-story mixed-use building with 24 residential units, and 3,000 sq.ft. of ground floor retail. The approval came with the condition that the project sponsor come back when they'd hammered out the design details, like materials, landscaping, and windows. The final design by Sternberg Benjamin Architects contains five 1br and 19 2br units, retail space on both Market and Castro streets, plus a neighborhood community room. Since it's an important street corner, the building is supposed play with a mix of terra cotta-clad and glass walls, in a mix of grays and "buff" colors (oohlala). There will be the seemingly requisite interpretation of bay windows, plus a roof terrace and balconies galore. The details have already been approved by Planning Department staff, so tomorrow is just an informational presentation to the Commission to prove they crossed their T's and dotted their I's.

Condos and Offices Proposed for South Beach Towers




Quote:
With updated plans submitted to the Planning Department, the 50 First Street project is officially back in play. Way back in 2006, the original plan for the site was a cluster of Renzo Piano designed towers, including two at 1,200 feet tall. Then in 2010 plans were changed to three SOM-designed towers, including 266 hotel rooms and a theater. The latest design, which ditches the hotel and theater, calls for two towers: an 850 foot, 59-story office tower and a 605 foot condo tower with 56 floors. Including a proposed rehab of the existing 88 First Street, a total of 605 dwelling units and over 1.2 million sq. ft. of office space is expected. With TMG Partners/Northwood Investors having completed a purchase of the 7-parcel site this week for $122 million, expect to hear plenty more about this project in the near future.

Oakland

Developers complete $18 million purchase of Oakland's Brooklyn Basin



Quote:
Ten years after going into escrow, the developers behind Brooklyn Basin, a 64-acre waterfront development in Oakland, closed on a deal Monday to buy the land for $18 million from the State Lands Commission and the Port of Oakland.

The developers agreed to the price in 2003 when the deal was first negotiated. At the time, the land was valued at $34 million with about $16 million needed for clean up and remediation.

The official buyer for the land is Zarsion-OHP I LLC, an entity managed by Signature Development Group and Chinese investor Zarsion America. The development team behind the project is Oakland Harbor Partners, a joint venture between Signature and Reynolds & Brown.

Zarsion came into the picture last April after agreeing to pump $1.5 billion into the build out of the project, which could take up to 15 years. Read more here.

The developers were selected to reuse the Brooklyn Basin site in 2001 and since then entitled the 64 acres for 3,000 residential units and 200,000 square feet of retail space along with 30 acres of parks and open space.

“We plan to build a new neighborhood in Oakland,” said Mike Ghielmetti, president of Signature Development. “We look forward to starting work early next year.”

So we finally have a proposal/rendering of a 450' tower at 524 howard street, which is directly south of the Transbay terminal:

This one has really gone under the radar. That area was up-zoned to 450' a while back, and the Transbay plan called for a tower at that location years ago, but this is the first proposal or rendering I've seen. I'm excited about it, SF really needs more skinny towers like this one.

Work Begins On The New 100 Van Ness Facade



Quote:
Thursday, June 13, 2013, by Michael Conrad

Share on email10A crane has been erected high over the roof of the 400 foot tall 100 Van Ness building and work has begun to convert the tower from a concrete-wrapped office building into a glass-draped residential tower. Workers have removed a potion of the original facade near the top of the high-rise, and are busy popping out windows in order to strip the original skin. When completed, the building will house 399 residential units, a roof deck on the 29th floor and retail on the ground floor. Parking will be limited to 112 spaces, but it's location near the Mid-Market and the intersection of Market and Van Ness streets will provide plenty of transportation options in all directions.

The tower proposed for 1481 post street, a project that has seemingly been dead for the past few years, is back, with a new design and new rendering:

http://www.socketsite.com/archives/2....html#comments



It's proposed at 416' feet tall, and just like with the last proposal, a bunch of wealthy idiot NIMBYs are flipping out and acting like it will somehow "ruin" their neighborhood (which is already full of highrises ). I hope the NIMBYs lose this battle, but I'm not holding my breath. They already have a NIMBY petition website up and everything, complete with blatant lies (seems to be a theme with NIMBYs in SF), such as claiming the tower would be "twice" as tall as any other building on cathedral Hill (completely false...it's only 20 feet or so taller than it's neighbor ), or that it would somehow create a traffic nightmare that would endanger senior citizens (LOL, where do these idiots get these ideas?).

As for the building, it definitely doesn't look as nice as the old SOM design, but from that one rendering, it does look like it could be pretty decent looking IMO.

It's almost as if 2008 till now never happened, almost every highrise/skyscraper project slated to go up then is now going up or about to. After walking around cathedral hill the other day, either everyone goes to Fillmore-Japantown, or walks down to Van Ness-Polk; that whole area should be way more dense, like a San Francisco version of Streeterville, with more going on. Then again the delegation at the Chinese Consulate might put out a ballot measure affirming their rights to a view of St. Mary's Cathedral and atleast 4 boring off-white colored 25 story buildings. It could pass depending on the supervisor.

Massive Schlage Lock Factory Redevelopment Back On



Quote:
With an unparalleled housing market booming in San Francisco, a developer is trying again to lock down the redevelopment of a large plot in Visitacion Valley that has sat fallow for more than a decade.

The former Schlage Lock Co. factory site is in many ways the exemplar of the dense, transit-friendly development that San Francisco, the greater Bay Area and the state love. The empty, 15.3-acre parcel is close to Muni's T-Third Street line that runs to downtown and the Bayshore station for Caltrain headed to Silicon Valley, it is close to U.S. Highway 101, it is near bike trails and there is a commercial corridor within walking distance.

If a plan to build about a dozen buildings of up to 80 feet in height with up to 1,600 units of rental and condominium housing -- what will eventually be a $600 million, multiyear project -- is re-approved by the Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors this fall, construction on the first phase, a 30,000-square-foot retail space -- with 220 units of housing above -- could begin as soon as next spring, according to Jonathan Scharfman, the development director of Universal Paragon Corp., which has owned the site since settlement of a lawsuit with Ingersoll Rand, the lock factory's old owner.

Occupancy of the new buildings could be as soon as 2016.


It's taken 14 years between the factory closure and the new development at the site -- despite unusual near-universal support from the neighborhood -- thanks to a combination of industrial pollution and a removal of government funding. Schlage Lock employed more than 1,000 people before the factory went the way of so many other San Francisco industries and closed its doors in 1999.

More Pricing Released for the Marlow on Van Ness



Quote:
The Marlow at 1800 Van Ness has released pricing for some of its units. While the boutique building won't be move-in ready until early 2014, that didn't stopped folks from buying up all the 18 pre-released units in just eight days about two months ago. The eight-story, 98-unit, mixed-used building with 4,900 square feet of commercial space has amenities like an attended lobby, common outdoor area, and secured parking for each home. The least expensive one bedroom currently available is a 1-bed, 1-bath, 746 square foot unit that's asking $725K. It has monthly HOA dues of $551.29. The most expensive one bedroom currently available is a 1-bed, 1-bath, 754 square foot unit that's asking $854K and has monthly HOA does of $553.03.

201 Folsom Mega-Project Breaks Ground in Rincon Hill



Quote:
Bulldozers are out in force, demolishing the existing parking lot at 201 Folsom Street between Main and Beale to make way for up to 725 residential units. The Tishman Speyer project will consist of two mid-rise and two high-rise towers surrounding a central courtyard. The glassy towers will rise to 38 and 43 stories, and contain a mix of studio through 3-bedroom units. The Arquitectonica design is meant to complement the existing Infinity Towers, built in the last decade, which also features 2 towers with an abundance of glass, and breathtaking views.

I'm not sure if the rendering is up to date, but good news none the less:

Quote:
Trumark Urban is set to start construction on a 27-condo project in the Marina, the first of a 625-unit, seven-project housing portfolio the company will be developing over the next four years.
The group has closed on 1501 Filbert St., an 11,000 square foot site that previously was home to a gas station.
The six-story building will feature large units targeting current residents of neighboring residents of the Marina District, Cow Hollow and Pacific Heights.

Mixed-Use Highrise Tower Looks to Build Near Waterfront



Quote:
Paramount Group is seeking permission to build a 31-story highrise mixed-use tower in San Francisco's Rincon Hill Area, on the site of a current parking structure. The tower, with waterfront views, would consist of 82 hotel rooms and 109 residential units. A new website has been launched with some shiny new renderings but that isn't swaying Rincon Neighbors, who call the project "undistinguished," and claim that, at 350 feet, it would "tower over nearby buildings." This one is still a long way from being finalized, however, with the Draft Environmental Impact Report due this summer.

A 22,000 sq. ft. food emporium, known as The Market, has inked a 30-year lease in the SF Mart building in Mid-Market. The combination retail/prepared food space "will focus on natural and specialty foods" from both local established firms and "micro-entrepreneurs."

399 Fremont Is Ready To Break Ground As Rentals



Quote:
Building permits for the redesigned 400-foot residential tower to rise at 399 Fremont Street have been approved and issued, redesigned to hit the market as smaller rental units rather than condos.

As we first reported last year, the 42-story Rincon Hill tower and podium to rise on the corner of Fremont and Harrison will yield 452 residential units with 238 parking spaces for autos (including 36 tandem spaces served by valet) and 150 spaces for bikes under the podium.

Lennar lands investors in $7B shipyard redevelopment

theshipyardsf.com

[IMG]http://assets.bizjournals.com/sanfrancisco/blog/Shipyard%20Main*600.jpg?v=1[/IMG]



A Minneapolis investment company has bought a “significant minority stake” in Lennar Urban’s $7 billion redevelopment of the Hunters Point Shipyard and Candlestick Point.

The details of the investment were not made public.

In addition, the 750-acre redevelopment project has received “millions of dollars” from the San Francisco Bay Area Regional Center, a U.S. government-approved entity involved with the federal EB-5 program, an government investor program that allows wealthy immigrants to invest $500,000 in an American business in exchange for temporary residency status.

Lennar and its partners also are in discussions with domestic and international banks that recently have inquired about opportunities with the project.

“As we have said all along, this public/private partnership is exciting because San Francisco needs housing and it needs jobs. Investors understand that the time is right for this project,’’ said Lennar Urban President Kofi Bonner.

The announcement comes two days after Lennar Urban started construction on the first 88 townhouses at the Hunters Point Shipyard. The units will be part of the Hilltop phase of the development, which will total 1,400 homes. Construction will be completed on 247 market-rate and affordable homes by the end of 2014.

At a ceremonial groundbreaking June 26th, Mayor Ed Lee called it “one of our City’s most important development projects in a generation.”

“We are moving forward without delay to transform the blighted former shipyard to bring new housing, parks and thousands of construction and permanent jobs to San Francisco in the next three decades,” he said.

The Hunters Point Shipyard-Candlestick Point is the largest redevelopment effort in San Francisco since the 1906 earthquake. The nearly $8 billion, 750-acre development project will create more than 12,000 new residential units, with more than one-third of those affordable to low-income households. In addition, the site is slated for a research and development campus and 350 acres of parkland.

China Development Bank agreed late last year to invest $1 billion into the redevelopment, but that deal fell apart in April.
